Anzac Centenary

What we can support

Anzac Centenary grants can help communities share and record their stories and experiences of the First World War.

Between 2014 and 2018, Australia commemorates 100 years since our involvement in the First World War. The Centenary is an opportunity to remember the contribution of the original Anzacs, and all Australian service personnel, in war and peace keeping efforts.

These grants are offered during the Centenary period.
